2:30 AM Phone Call ~

I was soooooo tired last night and needed a good nights rest, but that was not to be. At 2:30 am our telephone rang and I have learned by now that if you get a phone call at that time in the morning it is not good news. It was my son-in-law telling me that he had taken my daughter {who is 7 months pregnant} to the hospital because of breathing difficulties and they thought she had a blood clot in the lung. {Instantly terrified mother here} Of course you don't sleep after that kind of phone call. I laid there for hours asking God to please keep her safe and told Him that I am not ready to lose my daughter at 29 years old. My mind always races to the worst scenario and I played that over in my mind several times and then I just prayed and prayed and prayed.
Daughter called about 6:30 am and said they ran all kinds of tests and told her that she didn't have a clot but acute bronchitis. Thank God! She still needs prayer so if you think about it please pray for her. Switching gears... what do you think of this plate? It is an antique Johnson and Johnson plate. I got out my decals and thought, "why not" so I put a huge one right in the center of the plate. I think it is gorgeous , but it could only be used for display as I have not sealed it. What have you been creating lately ? I would love to know. Blessings~

Sandi, I will definitely pray for your sweet girl. How scarey for you. I'm so glad that it wasn't the blood clots, and I hope she's well very soon.

Hi, Sandi!

Hmmm... *My* experience with Dr's. is that they either blow something way out of proportion or they totally overlook something serious and obvious! Well, I remind myself that they are only human. ☺ bronchitis when you're pregnant is *not* fun. well, it never is but when you have a big baby to cough with, it's really hard!

I would have never known that was a decal on that plate! It's beautiful! I just got some decals in the mail this week and I can hardly wait to use them.

I've been doing so many projects but you'll have to wait and see what they are when I post about them! ☺ ♥

How terrible for you and your family. I am glad to hear it is not as bad as first thought.
I like your plate. Where do you get your decals from?

Thoughts and prayers are going out for your daughter. I recognized the decal on the plate, it's absolutely gorgeous. I am making an ATC card for a swap, not done with it as of yet.

Blessings,
